Open Virtual Network (OVN)
Open Virtual Network (OVN): Native Virtual Networking for Open vSwitch
OVN is a new network virtualization project that brings virtual networking to the Open vSwitch user community. It is being developed by the core OVS team. OVN will support the same container and virtual machine environments as OVS, including KVM, Xen, and Hyper-V. OVN will include logical switches and routers, security groups, and L2/L3/L4 ACLs, implemented on top of a tunnel-based overlay network. For physical-logical network integration, OVN will implement software gateways, as well as support hardware gateways from a variety of vendors. The OVN architecture simplifies the current OVS integration within Neutron by providing a virtual networking abstraction. OVN provides Neutron with improved dataplane performance through shortcut, distributed logical L3 processing and in-kernel based security groups, without running special OpenStack agents on hypervisors.
Open Virtual Network (OVN) offers the following virtual network services:
|Platforms (OS)||Linux, XEN|
|OpenFlow Versions||1.1, 1.2, 1.3|
